Face ID on the iPhone X is ‘pretty miraculous’ and ‘just works’, says Apple executive
When Craig Federighi tried to demo the iPhone X's new Face ID feature during Apple's special event last week, it didn't exactly go as planned. The iPhone X didn't unlock, and thinking quick on his feet, Federighi quickly picked up a nearby backup device and continued on with the presentation. According to Apple, the embarrassing misstep occurred because other Apple employees were handling the device in the build-up to the presentation. As Apple explained it: "Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a number of times, because they weren’t Craig, the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode."
